I purchased this vehicle April 2008. Compass North 2.4..After 12 years and 300,00km it is time to say goodbye to it. The slave cylinder and\or clutch has gone and I don't want to spend the money to fix it..But what a great vehicle! Almost everything on the car is still original even the battery! I had very few problems with it over the last 12 years and it has spent very little time in the shop. About the most expensive repair was for a new alternator. The old one still worked but the bearings were going and it made a awful racket. so all in all I was very pleased with the Compass and am very sorry to see it go. I may get another one but they seem to be quite a bit bigger theses days, so who knows?
